Declared Monuments in Hong Kong - Outlying Islands

Rock Carving at Shek Pik (Shek Pik, Lantau Island)
Most of the ancient rock carvings in the territory overlook the sea, but Shek Pik Rock Carving is about 300m from the coastline. However, it is believed that in the past, the sea inlet might have extended up to this point. The design shows geometric patterns composed of spiral squares and circles which closely resemble those on Bronze Age artefacts. It is thus quite safe to deduce that they were carved by early inhabitants of this area in the local Bronze Age some 3,000 years ago.
